Happy Clients

  • When my wife and I moved to San Francisco from the East Coast with our newborn, we quickly realized that navigating the beast of a real estate market in SF required a unique kind of agent. Luckily we found Alex. We spent 5 months looking for a home with Alex. In the process, he guided us thru 12 bids, all the typical multi-offer, SF auction-style, which can be anxiety provoking to say the least. "Are we bidding too much? Are we not bidding enough?!" Alex kept us grounded on this emotional roller coaster! We were able to tap into his unique market knowledge to navigate these conversations about how much to offer. Alex put us in touch with experts to discuss potential renovation projects on unloved properties. We picked his brain about every single micro-neighborhood in the city, talked single family vs condo and which side of the street to buy on in the Richmond if you like a sunny back yard. He is a wealth of knowledge to say the least. When we found a property that we loved, but were unsure about a few things that came up in the inspection, Alex's connections came to the rescue. Alex had the personal cell phone number of the inspector who had done the report and was able to put us in touch. This conversation gave my wife and I the reassurance that we needed to bid aggressively and got us our home. Without Alex this would not have happened. We highly recommend working with Alex to find your home in this amazing city! Dan, Hanni, Hazel and Brizzy

  • Alex has changed the RealEstate World of San Francisco for ever. There is no turning back. His work is an asset for the buyers, for the sellers, for the local economy. When Realtors were just happy to pocket hefty commissions and ride the wave, he went the other way and listened to his convinctions and slowly created his masterpiece: a real change in that world. The only wave he's riding are the breakers in his surfer wet suit! the rest is hard work and commitment to his clients. His style is not for all, but if you are wired enough to check this recommendation, then you MUST at lest interveiw him should you need an agent. He'll amaze you.

  • I had been reading Alex’s “sfnewsletter” for over a year, so I knew when I was ready to sell my house in San Francisco, Alex was my choice. His newsletters were very informative and intelligently written. I know this sounds corny, but I really liked his sign-off at the end of each newsletter — “Happy Aloha Friday”. Alex kept on top of all correspondence and paperwork and kept me apprised every step of the selling process. I am happy to say that we accepted an offer after only 2 weeks on the market. I would recommend Alex to anyone in need of a superior REALTOR.

  • Great agent. Not only did Alex stick by us through multiple offers but finally landed us our new home even though we weren’t the highest bidders and we were up against all cash offers. By really getting to know us and meeting with the sellers agent at offer time Alex was able to position us as the best fit for the home. His knowledge & navigational skills through this unpredictable market combined with a down to earth sensibility and overall likability are a winning combination. Thanks Alex – we look forward to hosting you at our moving in party!! Lauranne, Mike and Mary

  • Alex is an outstanding broker and an unparalleled ally in the super competitive world of SF real estate. He has an extraordinary knowledge of San Francisco real estate and uses it to the maximum benefit of his clients. He is personal, thoughtful and engaging with clients - he worked really hard to understand what we wanted to to help us find it. He is responsive and diligent - available whenever you need him and he gets the job done. Alex was so helpful to us when we moved to SF from New York - he helped us understand the landscape and then find and buy exactly what we wanted. We could not have asked for more and it does not get better.
